WARNING SUMMARY
This warning summary contains general safety warnings and hazardous materials warnings that must be
understood and applied during operation of this equipment. Failure to observe these precautions could
result in serious injury or death to personnel. Also included are explanations of safety and hazardous
materials icons used within this technical manual.
• Acetone and Methyl Ethyl Ketone are hazardous chemicals! Repeated or prolonged contact with liquid
or inhalation of vapor can cause skin and eye irritation, dermatitis, narcotic effects, and damage to
internal organs. Avoid contact with skin and eyes and do not breathe vapors. Always wear protective
goggles and gloves, and use only in well-ventilated areas. Do not use near open flame or excessive heat.
If you become dizzy while using one of these solvents, immediately get fresh air and medical help. If
solvent contacts eyes, immediately wash your eyes and get medical help. In case of skin contact, wash
contacted area thoroughly with soap and water.
• Use of compressed air can create airborne particles that may enter the eyes or penetrate skin. When
used for cleaning and drying, compressed air shall not exceed 30 psig. Adequate chip guards and eye
protection shall be used. Do not direct compressed air against skin.
• Do not attempt to cock the FF-2 release if the two white marks in the reset indicator are not aligned.
Inaccurate time delay and operating altitude will result. Failure to observe this warning may result in
severe injury or death to parachutist using the FF-2 release.
• Premature withdrawal of FF-2 release arming cable prior to reaching 2500 feet of altitude above desired
opening altitude will result in inaccurate time delay and opening altitude.
• After calculating FF-2 release opening altitude, the minimum arming altitude (opening altitude plus 2500
feet) should be ascertained. It is imperative that all concerned parachutists and aircrew members be
aware of this minimum arming altitude.
• Do not remove test arming pin and keep open end of barrel pointed in a safe direction towards ceiling or
floor. Removal of test arming pin will release main spring, expelling plunger with sufficient force to cause
serious injury to personnel.
• Position shield over glass bell jar prior to operating test set. Failure to do so may result in serious injury
to personnel.
WARNING
DEATH could result if inspections are not performed as specified in this manual. Perform all
inspections as specified.
WARNING
For First Aid treatment, refer to FM 4-25.11.
a
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
WARNING
Exercise extreme care when using petroleum products to destroy equipment by fire, as these
materials are highly flammable. Improper handling may cause injury to personnel.
WARNING
Failure to detect areas of damage may result in malfunction of the equipment and injury or loss of
life to personnel.
WARNING
When attaching the power cable assembly to the AR2, always verify proper engagement of ball
end of power cable with piston rod of AR2 by looking through transparent plastic cable seal
retainer. Cable seal and power cable seal must be present to ensure seating of power cable ball.
If ball is not engaged with piston rod, or if cable seal retainer is missing, actuation of AR2 will fail
to pull ripcord pins, which may result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
If there is any indication of a leak in the aneroid, remove the AR2 from service. A leaking aneroid
may cause a malfunction which may result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
The altitude dial indicates thousands of feet above mean sea level (not above ground level). If the
altitude dial is incorrectly set, two parachutes may deploy and become entangled, which may
result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
Do not move the JUMP/OFF switch to jump unless the (equivalent pressure altitude inside the)
aircraft is at least 1,500 feet above the altitude set on the dial. It is imperative that the AR2
remains well above its actuation altitude at all times after the JUMP/OFF switch has been moved
to jump. If there is a temporary reduction in aircraft altitude, and the AR2 switch is not recycled
back to jump after again rising above the actuation altitude, the AR2 will activate prematurely
during the jump, possibly causing deployment of the two parachutes which may become
entangled, which may result in death of parachutist.
b
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
WARNING
When the AR2 is used on the reserve parachute, the main parachute must be activated at an
altitude high enough to obtain a fully deployed canopy at least 1,500 feet above the actuation
altitude for the AR2. If the main parachute opens within only a few hundred feet of the AR2
actuation altitude, the AR2 may deploy the reserve parachute. The two parachutes may become
entangled, which may result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
The JUMP/OFF switch must be set to OFF immediately after every jump. Setting the JUMP/OFF
switch to OFF repositions the mechanisms for the next jump and prevents inadvertent actuation
on the ground or during transport. If the switch is left in JUMP position, the next jump will cause
the AR2 to actuate prematurely. Two parachutes may deploy and become entangled, which may
result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
Do not open or remove screws of AR2 housing. No internal maintenance is authorized.
Unauthorized disassembly may cause a malfunction which may result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
The power housing (outer flexible metal casing) must be inspected for looseness between its
convolutions. Looseness indicates either damage or a loss of interference fit between the outer
housing and Teflon liner, which maintains the housing length. Changes in housing length will
affect the pulling stroke of the AR2 and could result in incomplete extraction of ripcord pins, which
may result in death of parachutist.
WARNING
Make sure the JUMP and OFF decals are replaced on the correct sides of the switch lever.
Incorrectly placed decals will give you a false indication of AR2 condition and may result in death
of parachutist if the AR2 is used in a jump.
WARNING
The limitations prescribed for patching will be stringently adhered to under all circumstances and
without any deviations. Failure to do so may result in failure of an ancillary item causing death or
serious injury to personnel.

HOW TO USE THIS MANUAL
This manual contains General Information, Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS), and
Maintenance Information for the Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment.
Chapter 1 contains introductory information on the Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment and any
associated equipment as well as Equipment Description and Data. Chapter 2 details Unit Maintenance
Procedures. Chapter 3 contents contains Supporting Information.
Manual Organization and Page Numbering System. The manual is divided into three major chapters
that detail the topics mentioned above. Within each chapter are work packages covering a wide range of
topics. Each work package is numbered sequentially starting at page 1. The work package has its own
page numbering scheme and is independent of the page numbering used by other work packages. Every
work package has an even number of pages so that it does not interfere with any other work package.
Each page of a work package has a page number of the form XXXX YY-ZZ where “XXXX” is the work
package number (e.g. 0010 is work package 10). “YY” is a number that allows for a work package to be
inserted between two existing work packages without disturbing the remainder of the TM (e.g WP 0010 01
would fall between WP 0010 and WP 0011). “ZZ” represents the number of the page within that work
package. A page number such as 0010 00-1/(2 Blank) means that page 1 contains information but page 2
of that work package has been intentionally left blank. A page number such as 0010 00-(1 Blank)/2 means
that page 1 of that work package has been intentionally left blank but page 2 contains information.
Illustrations. Illustrations for procedures in this manual always follow the procedure. For example, if
given a procedural instruction such as “1. Locate the pump assembly (1).”, the (1) references the photo
or illustration immediately following the procedure.
Finding Information. The Table of Contents permits the reader to find information in the manual quickly.
The reader should start here first when looking for a specific topic. The Table of Contents lists the topics
contained within each chapter and the work package sequence number where it can be found.
Example: If the reader were looking for instructions on cleaning and drying which is a unit maintenance
topic, the table of contents indicates that unit maintenance information can be found in Chapter 2.
Scanning down the listings for Chapter 2, Cleaning and Drying can be found in WP 0012 00 (Work
Package 12).
An Alphabetical Index can be found at the back of the manual. It lists specific topics with the
corresponding work package.

ANCILLARY MILITARY FREE-FALL EQUIPMENT
GENERAL INFORMATION
0001 00
SCOPE
This Technical Manual provides Unit maintenance instructions for Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment.
This equipment is used by Military Free-Fall qualified personnel.
MAINTENANCE FORMS AND PROCEDURES
Department of the Army forms and procedures used for equipment maintenance shall be those
prescribed by DA PAM 738-750, The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) (Maintenance
Management Update).
DESTRUCTION OF ARMY MATERIEL TO PREVENT ENEMY USE
Objective. Methods of destruction used to inflict damage on air delivery equipment should make it
impossible to restore equipment to a usable condition in a combat zone, by either repair or
cannibalization.
Authority. Destruction of air delivery equipment that is in imminent danger of capture by an enemy is a
command decision that must be made by a battalion or higher commander, or the equivalent.
Implementation plan. All units that possess air delivery equipment should have a plan for the
implementation of destruction procedures.
Training. All personnel who use or perform such functions as rigging, packing, maintenance, or storage
of air delivery equipment, should receive thorough training on air delivery equipment destruction
procedures and methods. The destruction methods demonstrated during training should be simulated.
Upon completion of training, all applicable personnel should be thoroughly familiar with air delivery
equipment destruction methods and be capable of performing destruction without immediate reference to
any publication.
SPECIFIC METHODS
Specific methods of destroying Army materiel to prevent enemy use shall be by mechanical means, fire or
by use of natural surroundings.
Destruction by Mechanical Means. Air delivery equipment metal assemblies, parts, and packing aids
shall be destroyed using hammers, bolt cutters, files, hacksaws, drills, screwdrivers, crowbars, or other
similar devices used to smash, break, bend or cut.
WARNING
Exercise extreme care when using petroleum products to destroy
equipment by fire, as these materials are highly flammable. Improper
handling may cause injury to personnel.
0001 00-1
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0001 00
Destruction by Fire. Items that can be destroyed by fire shall be burned. The destruction of equipment
by use of fire is an effective method of destroying low-melting-point metal items (e.g., side rails, threaded
portions of nuts and bolts, and platforms). However, mechanical destruction should be completed first,
whenever possible, before initiating destruction by fire. When items to be destroyed are made of metal,
textile materials (or some comparable low combustible material) should be packed under and around the
items, then soaked with a flammable petroleum product and ignited. Proper concentration of equipment
that is suitable for burning will provide a hotter and more destructive fire.
Destruction by Use of Natural Surroundings. Small vital parts of assemblies, that are easily
accessible, may be disposed of as follows: Disposal or denial of equipment to an enemy may be
accomplished through use of natural surroundings. Accessible vital parts of assemblies may be removed
and scattered through dense foliage, buried in dirt or sand, or thrown into a lake, stream or other body of
water. Total submersion of equipment in a body of water will provide water damage as well as
concealment. Salt water will inflict extensive damage to air delivery equipment.
PREPARATION FOR STORAGE AND SHIPMENT
For storage and shipment, refer to TM 10-1670-201-23/T.O. 13C-1-41/NAVAIR 13-1-17, and WP 0009
00; for shipment, refer to WP 0010 00 of this manual.
QUALITY ASSURANCE (QA)
Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment is inspected in accordance with MIL-STD-105 at government
acceptance.

REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)
If your Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the
user, are the only one who can tell us what you don’t like about your equipment. Let us know why you
don’t like the design or performance. Put it on an SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report).
Mail it to Commander, U.S. Army Tank-automotive and Armament Command. ATTN: AMSTA-LC-R,
Kansas Street, Natick, MA 01760-5052. We will send you a reply.
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of U.S. Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important
that any corrosion problems with these items be reported so that the problem can be corrected and
improvements made to prevent the problem in future items. While corrosion is typically associated with
rusting of metals, it can also include deterioration of other materials, such as rubber and plastic. Unusual
cracking, softening, swelling or breaking of these materials may be considered a corrosion problem.
0001 00-2
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0001 00
If a corrosion problem is identified, it can be reported using a Standard Form 368 Product Quality
Deficiency Report. Using keywords such as “corrosion,” “rust,” “deterioration,” or “cracking” will assure
that the information is identified as a CPC problem.
This form should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 738-750, Functional Users Manual for
the Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS).
WARRANTY INFORMATION
The Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment does not contain warranty provisions except for the Parachute
Drop Bag (PDB) which is warrantied as follows:
Eagle Industries warranties the PDB for 5 years or 125 jumps on material and workmanship from the time
the PDB is first used. Shelf life will be for a period of 5 years. Eagle Industries will pay two way shipping

Parachute Drop Bag (PDB) Description. (9) The Parachute Drop Bag is a fast, easy and secure way of
carrying the jumper’s rucksack and Load Bearing Equipment during Military Free Fall or Static Line
deployment operations. The PDB is made from textured nylon, cloth duck material. The PDB has
shoulder straps on both inside and outside the bag. It will be a Woodland or Desert camouflage on the
outside with the inside being a darker gray color so it will have a lower profile when transporting through
airports and high secure areas. An integrated lowering line (7-ft or 15-ft) is used for lowering of equipment
during Military Free-Fall and Static Line operations. The PDB has duel mounting capabilities that will
allow the jumper to attach the bag to the front for Static Line operations, and rear or front configurations
for Military Free-Fall operations. Incorporated in the PDB is a single point release system, which will allow
for the jumper to lower their equipment easily while descending to the drop zone. Parachute grade
hardware is used on this system for safety and durability. The PDB comes in a regular size which will be
incorporated into jump operations whether MFF or Static Line. The regular PDB weighs 7 lbs and has
approx. 5520 cubic inches of storage space with a minimum 35 lbs and maximum 120 lbs rigged for jump
operations.

ANCILLARY MILITARY FREE-FALL EQUIPMENT
THEORY OF OPERATION
0003 00
THEORY OF OPERATION
GENERAL. The Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment is used on High Altitude Low Opening (HALO) and
High Altitude High Opening (HAHO) parachute operations. The equipment is to provide safety to
parachutists, a means of communication between parachutists and supporting aircraft, determination of
jump/opening altitude, and a means of lowering personal equipment prior to landing. The FF-2 and AR2
automatically activates a ripcord when a predetermined altitude is reached.
The AR2 senses rate of fall and altitude above mean sea level (not above ground level). When the AR2
falls through the altitude set on the altitude dial at a rate of fall of over 80 ft/sec, the power cable will
retract two inches (minimum) and at an initial force of 70 pounds. If the rate of fall is at a slower speed,
such as 70 ft/sec, the AR2 will not actuate.
When the AR2 is used on the reserve parachute, the main parachute must be fully deployed at least
1,500 feet above the actuation altitude for the AR2. While in free fall, if the main parachute opens within
only a few hundred feet above the actuation altitude, the fall rate mechanism may not have sufficient time
to equalize pressure and deactivate. This could result in the deployment of two parachutes, leading to
problems associated therewith. If the fall is initiated below the altitude set on the altitude dial, the
AR2 will definitely actuate, and generally within 1,000 feet of free fall.
THEORY OF OPERATION FOR THE PARACHUTE DROP BAG
Parachute Drop Bag (PDB). The PDB is a lightweight nylon bag used to carry mission essential
equipment to include current field packs (Alice Pack, Molle Pack, Spear Pack, and Field Pack w/internal
Frame) during Military Free-Fall (MFF) jumps. The PDB is mounted to the d-rings on the main harness
assembly of the free-fall parachute system. When the jumper wears the PDB in the front mounting
configuration the incorporated single point release will only be used. Mounting the PDB in the rearmounting configuration the 2-point quick releases will only be used. Leg Straps assist in retaining the
PDB bag to the parachutist during exit and main parachute deployment. Lowering line permits lowering
the pack below the parachutist prior to landing to mitigate potential damage to personnel and equipment.
Lowering Line. The standard lowering line is used to lower a 7-ft or 15-ft assembly with a quick ejector
snap fastener for attachment to the parachute harness. The line is used with the PDB when performing
MFF jumps.
Harness, Single Point Release. This harness is a general purpose item used by the individual
parachutist to jump the ALICE medium or large combat pack with or without frame. It is of an “H” type
design with a network of equipment retainer straps, cross straps, leg straps, leg strap release assembly,
attaching harness strap, and single point release handle.

OVERVIEW
This chapter contains information necessary to maintain Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment, on the unit
and direct support maintenance levels, in accordance with the Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC) for
the equipment. It includes the following:
1. Procedures for processing new or used equipment upon receipt.
2. Assembly of components prior to use.
3. Preventive maintenance procedures to ensure continued serviceability of all components.
4. As required inspections and maintenance procedures performed prior to use, such as cleaning and
drying.
5. Repair methods and repair, or replacement, procedures for all components.
INITIAL RECEIPT
The following describes the procedures for processing Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment upon initial
receipt.
General Procedures for Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment. When Ancillary Military Free-Fall
Equipment is initially procured from a supply source and issued to a using unit, the item(s) will be
unpacked from the shipping container(s) and inspected by a qualified parachute rigger (MOS 92R). The
inspection preformed will be a technical/ rigger-type inspection and will be conducted as outlined in the
Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) procedures. Upon completion of the inspection,
the item(s) will be tagged as prescribed in DA PAM 738-751. Serviceable equipment may then be entered
either into storage or into use in airdrop operations, as applicable. An unserviceable item will be held and
reported, in accordance with DA PAM 738-750/ MCO 4855.10B.
Shipping Materials. Save the shipping cartons and crates for reuse when possible.
Inspection Personnel. Personnel other than parachute rigger personnel may assist in the unpacking
process of initially received Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment, as directed by the local air delivery
equipment maintenance officer. However, the maintenance officer will ensure the entire unpacking effort
is conducted under the direct supervision of a qualified rigger (MOS 92R).
Checking Unpacked Equipment. Inspect each unpacked component for damage and completeness,
and application of all pertinent Modification Work Orders (MWOs) as follows:
0004 00-1
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0004 00
Damage. Check the equipment for damage incurred during shipment. Report any damage on DA Form
2404, Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet and initiate corrective maintenance procedures
in accordance with this manual.
Completeness. Inspect the contents of shipment against the packing slip to see if any items are missing.
Report any discrepancies in accordance with DA Pam 738-750. The equipment may be placed in service
provided missing items do not affect function or safety of the equipment.
Modifications. Check DA Pam 25-30 to see if there are any MWOs applicable to the equipment you are
unpacking. If any MWOs are listed, check DA Form 2408-5, Equipment Modification Record to see if
MWOs have been applied to the equipment. The MWO number will be shown near the equipment
nomenclature label. If a current MWO Is listed in DA Pam 25-30, but there is no evidence that it has been
applied to the equipment you are unpacking, note discrepancy on DA Form 2404, Equipment Inspection
and Maintenance Worksheet.
Configuration Condition. Acceptance of new equipment from the manufacturer is based upon
inspections made of sample lots that have been randomly selected in accordance with military standards.
It is incumbent upon the using activity personnel to bear this in mind whenever equipment is first placed in
service. Changes will sometimes evolve from the original equipment design and sometimes contractors
are authorized deviations in material and construction techniques. Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment
that has been in the field cannot be expected to meet exacting manufacturing specifications; however, the
equipment should closely reflect desired design characteristics. Since repairs, modifications, and/or
changes can alter or detract from the configuration originally desired, such equipment shall be airworthy,
safe, of the desired configuration, and adequate for intended use.
Marking Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment. Prior to being placed into service, Ancillary Military
Free-Fall Equipment that has had no previous use will be marked to reflect the date of entry into service
(as applicable). The marking will be made on the information data tag by stenciling. Other applicable
Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment will be marked adjacent to existing data. The stenciled data will
indicate IN-SVC followed by the date, which will indicate the month and calendar year, such as “Jan. 02”.
Ensure the added marking does not infringe upon, or obliterate, any original data on the information data
tag.
Parachute Log Record. The Army Parachute Log Record, DA Form 3912, AFTO 391, and
NAVWPNCEN or NAWCWPNS CL 13512/11 (Premeditated Parachute Record) are history-type
maintenance documents that accompany some of the Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment through the
period of service of the individual assembly. The log record provides a means of recording maintenance
actions performed on Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment. Normally, a log record is initiated and
attached to the item by a using unit. However, if the item is subjected to alteration or modification by a
maintenance activity during the interim period from date of manufacture to receipt by a using unit, the log
record will be prepared by the activity performing the maintenance function. Once initiated, a log record
will be attached to, and contained in, an area that would prevent the log record book from being
destroyed or rendered unfit for further use or repair.
Additionally, should an item that requires a log record, be transferred from one unit to another, the log
record for the item will accompany the item in the transfer action. A prepared log record will not be
removed or separated from an item except as directed by the local air delivery equipment maintenance
activity officer.
A log record that is illegible, lost, damaged, soiled, or precludes further entries due to lack of space, will
be replaced upon the next inspection, as applicable, with a serviceable item from stock.

When Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment is received at the maintenance activity, following its use by
the parachutist during air delivery, it must be cleaned (WP 0012 00) and tested if necessary, before it can
be returned to service. If an item is issued but is not used, it must be given a routine inspection by a
qualified parachute rigger (MOS 92R).

UNIT MAINTENANCE
ANCILLARY MILITARY FREE-FALL EQUIPMENT
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS), INTRODUCTION
GENERAL
The following describe PMCS procedures on the unit and direct support levels. The PMCS table has been
provided to ensure the equipment is in proper operating condition, and ready for its primary mission.
SCOPE
The following work packages (WP 0005 00 through WP 0028 00) contain maintenance procedures that
are the responsibility of the specified technician, as authorized by the Maintenance Allocation Chart
(MAC), and the Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability (SMR) coded items that are identified in the
Repair Parts and Special Tools List (RPSTL).
MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS/PROCEDURES
Each of the mentioned work packages above identifies a maintenance function specified in the MAC. All
maintenance procedures required to complete a maintenance function are identified under THIS TASK
COVERS: in the order in which the work is most logically accomplished.
DROP TESTING CRITERIA
Drop-testing of aerial delivery equipment consist of physically airdropping an item from an aircraft in flight,
The drop-test is used as a means of proving the serviceability of an item or checking parachute rigger
proficiency, and will only be performed under the supervision of qualified parachute rigger personnel who
satisfy the supervisory requirements outlined in AR 750-32. Drop-testing will usually be conducted by an
activity responsible for the inspection and maintenance of airdrop equipment, which includes either
parachute packing or airdrop load rigging. The criteria required to accomplish a drop test as follows:
1. Any type of airdrop equipment that indicates evidence of malfunction/defect during, or after, a
drop-test will be disposed of as prescribed in WP 0008 00.
2. Airdrop equipment that does not reflect evidence of malfunction or defect upon completion of a
drop-test will be administered a technical/rigger-type inspection as outlined in WP 0008 00. If
serviceable, the item(s) may then remain in use.

GENERAL
The following describe PMCS procedures on the unit and direct support levels. The PMCS table has been
provided to ensure the Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment is in proper operating condition, and ready
for its primary mission.
Frequency of Performing PMCS. PMCS will be performed before equipment is rigged for use, during
modification and repair after use, or at any time deemed necessary by the air delivery equipment
maintenance officer.
PMCS Columnar Entries Table 1.
Item Number. The item number column shall be used as a source of the item number required for the TM
Number column on DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet), when recording
the results of the PMCS.
Interval. This column identifies the required PMCS interval.
Item to be Inspected. Contains the common name of the item to be inspected.
Procedures. Provides a brief description of the procedures by which the checks are to be performed.
Not Fully Mission Capable If: Column. Information in this column tells you what faults will keep your
equipment from being capable of performing its primary mission. If you perform check and service
procedures that show faults listed in this column, do not operate the equipment. Follow standing
operating procedures for maintaining the equipment or reporting equipment failure.
Recording Defects. All defects discovered during the inspection will be recorded using tile applicable
specifics in DA Pamphlet 738-750, DA Pamphlet 738-751 and TB 43-0002-43.
Over Age Items. During any inspection, or at any time that an item is found to be over age (i.e.,
shelf/service-life has expired as specified in TB 43-0002-43), the item will be removed from service,
condemned, and tagged, in accordance with DA PAM 738-751.
Conservation of Resources. To conserve time and labor, and to avoid evacuation to a direct support
maintenance activity, unit/detachment commanders may designate, in writing, rigger personnel to
accomplish classification inspection of over age air delivery equipment and the classification of Beyond
Economical Repair (BER) ancillary equipment.
Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, air delivery equipment maintenance personnel at a
packing, rigging, or repair activity will perform a technical/rigger-type inspection. The inspection of initial
receipt items will be performed as a separate function from packing or rigging activity; the item to be
inspected will be placed in proper layout on a packing table or suitable sized floor area.
Should defect or damage be discovered at any point during the inspection, the inspection will be
terminated and the applicable item will be processed and forwarded to repair activity. The repair activity,
in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger-type inspection that will be performed by only those parachute
rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32. Any defect discovered during a unit level repair activity inspection,
that exceeds the capability of that activity, will require the affected item to be evacuated to a direct
support maintenance function.

GENERAL
This section contains Unit Maintenance procedures for the Ancillary Military Free-Fall Equipment as
authorized by the Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC), WP 0031 00 of this manual. Procedures include
instructions for inspecting, servicing, repairing and replacing assemblies and subassemblies. All
maintenance procedures in this section can be performed by one person unless otherwise stated in the
initial setup. Read all WARNINGS, CAUTIONS, NOTES and instructions carefully before attempting a
procedure. Read and observe the WARNINGS at the front of this manual.
ROUTINE INSPECTION
A routine inspection is a visual check performed to ascertain the serviceability of all visible components of
an item that is packed or rigged for use. The inspection will be made on all components that can be
inspected without opening the container. Prior to issue, a parachute rigger will administer this inspection.
Aerial delivery equipment issued for an air delivery operation and used will receive a routine inspection
prior to being placed into ready-for-issue storage.
TECHNICAL/RIGGER-TYPE INSPECTION
A technical/rigger-type inspection is a complete and thorough inspection of an individual airdrop item,
including associated parts and components. The following paragraphs outline criteria applicable to
accomplishing a technical/rigger-type inspection. It will be performed by a qualified parachute rigger in
accordance with AR 750-32.
1. Inspection Intervals.
a. Upon initial receipt of procured equipment issued to a using unit by a supply source.
b. Immediately before equipment is packed or rigged for use in airdrop operations.
c.
Before and after repairs or modifications are made.
d. At any other time as deemed necessary by the airdrop equipment maintenance officer.
0008 00-1
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0008 00
2. Inspection Function Requirement. Normally, a technical/rigger-type inspection will be performed at
a packing, rigging or repair activity. The inspection of initial receipt items will be performed as a
separate function from packing or rigging operations. When the inspection is conducted at a packing
or rigging activity, the item to be inspected will be placed in proper layout on a packing table or
suitable sized floor area. Should a defect or damage be discovered at any point during the inspection,
the inspection will be terminated and the applicable item will be processed and forwarded to a repair
activity. The repair activity in turn, will conduct a technical/rigger type inspection that will be performed
by only those parachute rigger personnel cited in AR 750-32. The repair activity inspection of
personnel parachutes will be made on a shadow table. Any defect discovered during a unit level
repair activity inspection which exceeds the capability of that activity will require the affected item to
be evacuated to a direct support maintenance facility for determination of economic repair and its
application, if applicable.
Perform Inspection as follows:
1. Overall Inspection. An overall inspection will be made on the Ancillary equipment to ascertain the
following.
a. Log Record/Parachute Inspection Data Pocket and Form. As applicable inspect the assembly
log record/ parachute inspection data pocket (as applicable) to insure the Army Parachute Log
Record (DA form 3912) or NAVWPNCEN or NAVWPNS CL 13512/11 (Parachute History Record)
is enclosed and properly attached. Further, remove the log record from the pocket and evaluate
the recorded entries. Inspect and evaluate as follows:
The Army Parachute Log Record, DA Form 3912, and AFTO 391 are history-type
maintenance documents that accompany the items through the period of service of the individual
assembly. The log record provides a means of recording maintenance actions performed on the
items. Normally, a log record is initiated and attached to a convenient point on the item by a using
unit. However, if the item is subjected to alteration or modification by a maintenance activity
during the interim period from date of manufacture to receipt by a using unit, the log record will be
prepared by the activity performing the maintenance function. Once initiated, a log record will be
attached to, or contained in a suitable area, until such time as the item is destroyed or rendered
unfit for further use or repair. Additionally, should an item that requires a log record, be
transferred from one unit to another, the log record for that item will accompany the item in the
transfer action. A prepared log record will not be removed or separated from the item except as
directed by the local air delivery equipment maintenance activity officer. A log record that is
illegible, lost, damaged, soiled, or precludes further entries due to lack of space, will be replaced
upon the next inspection, as applicable, with a serviceable item from stock.
b. Assembly completeness. Ensure the applicable assembly is complete and that no components
(or parts) are missing.
c.
Operational Adequacy. Check the item components and parts to ensure proper assembly,
which includes attachment and alignment, and that the assembled product functions in the
prescribed manner. Further ensure that no stitch formation (or sewn seam) has been omitted.
d. Markings and Paint. Inspect each assembly and associated components for faded, illegible,
obliterated, or missing informational data, identification numbers, and warning marks. Also check
for chipped, worn, or peeled paint, as applicable.
0008 00-2
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0008 00
e. Foreign Material and Stains. Inspect each assembly and related components for the presence
of dirt or similar type foreign material. Also check for evidence of mildew, moisture, oil, grease,
pitch, resin, or contamination by salt water.
2. Detailed Inspection. In addition to the overall inspection performed in (1) above, a detailed
inspection will be performed on the materials that constitute the assembly or component construction
using the following criteria, as applicable:
a. Metal. Inspect for rust, corrosion, dents, bends, breaks, burrs, rough spots, sharp edges, wear,
deterioration; damaged, loose, or missing grommets, safety pins, connector snap, eye hook, pack
fastener; improper swaging or welding; loss of spring tension; and missing or loose screws.
b. Cloth. Inspect for breaks, burns, cuts, frays, holes, rips, snags, tears; loose, missing, or broken
stitching or tacking; weak spots, wear, or deterioration.
c.
Fabric tape, webbing, and cordage. Inspect for breaks, burns, cuts, frays, holes, snags, tears,
incorrect weaving, and sharp edges formed from searing; loose, missing, or broken stitching,
tacking, whipping, and weaving; weak spots, wear, and deterioration.
d. Pressure-sensitive (adhesive) tape. Inspect for burns, holes, cuts, tears, weak spots; looseness
and deterioration.
e. Rubber and elastic. Inspect for burns, cuts, holes, tears, weak spots; loss of elasticity and
deterioration.
f.
Felt. Inspect for cuts, tears, burns, breaks, holes, and thin spots.
g. Leather. Inspect for burns, cuts, holes, tears, loose missing or broken stitching; thin spots and
deterioration.
IN STORAGE INSPECTION
An in-storage inspection is a physical check conducted on a random sample of air delivery equipment that
is located in storage. The purpose of the inspection is to ensure that the item is ready for issue, that the
item is properly identified and segregated from other types of equipment, that no damage or deterioration
of the equipment has been incurred, and that all modifications or similar action requirements have been
completed. The inspection shall also concern the methods and procedures applied to the storage of air
delivery items, the adequacy of storage facilities, efforts of pest and rodent control, and protection against
unfavorable climatic conditions. Air delivery equipment that is in storage will be inspected at least
semiannually and at more frequent intervals if prescribed by the local parachute maintenance officer. The
frequency of inspection may vary according to the type of storage facilities and local climatic conditions.
Only parachute rigger personnel designated by the local parachute maintenance officer will conduct instorage inspections.
Equipment Disposition
Air delivery equipment may be rendered unserviceable by either normal fair wear or by aging, and will
subsequently be repaired, modified, or condemned, as appropriate. Equipment that is uneconomically
repairable (outdated) will be condemned. Disposition of air delivery equipment that is condemned,
unserviceable, or for which serviceability is questionable, will be accomplished using the following
procedures as applicable:
1. Item requiring repair or modification. An air delivery item that requires repair or modification will be
tagged in accordance with DA Pam 738-751. Subsequent work will be performed on the item at the
0008 00-3
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0008 00
maintenance level specified for the maintenance function in the applicable supporting technical
publication.
2. Equipment with exhausted age or service life. Any component or air delivery equipment whose
age or service life has expired as specified in TB 43-0002-43 will be removed from service,
condemned and tagged as prescribed by DA PAM 738-751.
3. Disposition of Condemned Air Delivery Equipment. Condemned equipment, other than fatality
parachutes, will be removed from service and disposed of in accordance with current directives listed
in this WP.
4. Rejected equipment. Equipment which, prior to use is deemed unserviceable will be reported in an
Equipment Improvement Recommendation (EIR) in accordance with DA PAM 738-750, as authorized
by AR 750-1. Each applicable item that is defective will be held and safeguarded pending receipt of
disposition instructions from the National Maintenance Point (NMP). In all instances, EIR exhibit
material will be handled as prescribed in DA PAM 738-750. If the quality or the serviceability of an
item is questionable, clarification and assistance may be obtained by contacting Commander, U.S.
Army Soldier and Biological Chemical Command, ATTN: AMSSB-RIM-E(N), Kansas Street, Natick,
MA 01760-5052.
5. Equipment of Doubtful Serviceability. Equipment that has had previous use and has not exceeded
normal fair wear or aging criteria, but of which further serviceability is doubtful, will be tagged as
prescribed in DA PAM 750-751. In addition, the equipment will be reported in an EIR, in accordance
with DA PAM 738-750 and AR 750-1. The item(s) in question will be held as EIR exhibit material as
outlined in DA PAM 738-750 pending receipt of disposition instructions from the NMP. A maintenance
activity holding EIR exhibit material will not tamper with the applicable item(s) or make any attempt to
ascertain cause factors. Unnecessary handling of EIR exhibit material may disturb or alter peculiar
aspects of the affected item(s) that might affect the judgment of engineering personnel who have the
responsibility for final evaluation of EIR actions.
6. Equipment immersed in salt-water. Any air delivery item constructed from cotton material that has
been immersed in salt-water will be condemned. Cotton thread used for tacking and sewing on nylon
that has been immersed in salt-water will only be replaced when there is visible evidence or
deterioration such as extreme discoloration or indications of broken thread. Any air delivery
equipment constructed of nylon or rayon material that has been immersed in salt-water for a period
less than 24-hours, but which cannot be rinsed within 48-hours after recovery will also be condemned
unless the following actions can be performed. Upon removal from the salt water, the parachute is
placed in a single heavy duty plastic trash bag, the top of the bag securely closed and kept in a wet
state until a rinse can be performed following normal rinse procedures. The bag must be doubled
when outside temperatures exceed 85 degrees F. The bags must be inspected after transport and
storage to insure the bag did not get torn and the assembly allowed to dry. Parachutes recovered
using this method must be rinsed no later than 7 days after the salt water immersion or be
condemned. However, if the cited time limitations can be met, then immediately upon recovery,
suspend or elevate the recovered equipment in a shaded area and allow the item(s) to drain for at
least 5-minutes. Do not attempt to wring the equipment fabric. Within 48-hours after recovery, under
the supervision of a qualified parachute rigger (92R), rinse the recovered equipment as indicated in
WP 0011 00.

AIRING
Where dampness and mildew are prevalent, air delivery equipment will be aired at frequent intervals
according to the severity of the prevailing conditions. Items that have been previously packaged or are
unpackaged, and have been subjected to conditions of dampness or mildew, will be aired for a period of
at least 6-hours prior to being repackaged. Air delivery items may be aired either indoors or outdoors, in
dry weather. However, fabric items will not be aired in direct sunlight. Suspending or elevating the
applicable item(s) in a manner that would allow maximum exposure to air circulation may accomplish
airing. Outside facilities may be used for the airing of air delivery equipment if weather conditions permit.
If the shakeout facilities are inadequate for airing, the applicable item(s) may be suspended or elevated at
several points, or draped over suitable type objects that will not cause damage.

CAUTION
If, during the cleaning, there exists a possibility that the substance to be removed
contains acid or some other equally destructive ingredient, the item will be evacuated to
intermediate maintenance activity for determination as to the nature of the substance and
item disposition. If the substance cannot be identified, or if normal repair procedures will
not eliminate all traces of chemical or acid damage, the applicable item will be
condemned.
NOTE
Cleaning of fabric items should be held to a minimum and should be performed only
when necessary, to prevent malfunction or deterioration. When fabric item(s) contains
debris, or when it is soiled by dirt, oil, grease, rust, corrosion, or other foreign substances,
to such an extent that cleaning is necessary, the cleaning should be performed manually
and should be limited to the soiled area only, unless the fabric items has been
contaminated by water. The methods of cleaning must be determined by the nature of the
substance to be removed. Do not use cleaning solvent to clean items soiled by
airsickness. Use a solution of hand dishwashing compound to clean this type of soiling.
CLEANING FABRIC ITEMS WITH A SOLUTION OF HAND DISHWASHING COMPOUND
Use dishwashing compound to clean fabric items as follows:
1. Gently brush with a soft bristle brush.
2. Spot clean with a solution of dishwashing compound.
a. Dissolve one-half cup of dishwashing compound in one-gallon of warm water.
b. Rub the soiled area with a clean cloth dampened with a solution of dishwashing compound.

dampened with water.
RINSING FABRIC ITEMS IMMERSED IN SALT WATER
If the fabric items, or any of its components, has been immersed in salt water in excess of 24-hours it will
be condemned. Additionally, if the fabric items, or any of its components, has been immersed in salt
water for a period less than 24-hours, but cannot be rinsed within 48-hours after recovery, it will also be
condemned unless the following actions can be performed. Upon removal from the salt water, the
parachute is placed in a single heavy duty plastic trash bag, the top of the bag securely closed and kept
in a wet state until a rinse can be performed following normal rinse procedures. The bag must be doubled
when outside temperatures exceed 85 degrees F. The bags must be inspected after transport and
storage to insure the bag did not get torn and the assembly allowed to dry. Parachutes recovered using
this method must be rinsed no later than 7 days after the salt water immersion or be condemned.
However, if the cited time limitations can be met, then immediately upon recover, suspend or elevate the
fabric item assembly in a shaded area and allow it to drain for at least 5-minutes. Do not attempt to wring
the fabric. Within 48-hours after recovery, under the supervision of a qualified parachute rigger (92R),
rinse the recovered fabric item assembly as follows:
1. Place the fabric items in a large watertight container filled with a suitable amount of fresh,
clean water to cover the assembly.
NOTE
If the salt-water-soaked fabric item is too large to be placed into a rinsing container, then
the rinsing process will be affected by applying fresh, clean water to the assembly using a
hose.
2. Agitate the container contents by hand for 5-minutes.
3. Remove the fabric item from the container and suspend or elevate it in a shaded area, allowing a 5minute drainage period. Do not attempt to wring the fabric.
4. Repeat the procedures in steps 1. through 3. above, twice, using fresh, clean water for each rinse.
5. After the third rinse, allow the fabric item to drain thoroughly. Upon completion of draining, dry the
assembly in accordance with the DRYING FABRIC ITEMS procedures, below.
6. When dried, perform a technical/rigger-type inspection of the fabric items. Corroded metal
components, or corrosion-stained fabrics, will be either repaired or replaced as prescribed by the
Maintenance Allocation Chart (MAC) in WP 0031 00.
7. Record any repair, immersion, and rinsing in the parachute log record as shown in WP 0004 00.
RINSING FABRIC ITEMS IMMERSED IN FRESH WATER
Any fabric item, or its components, that has been immersed in a fresh water lake, river, or stream will not
require rinsing unless it has been ascertained that the water is dirty, oily, or otherwise contaminated.

Cotton tape, webbing, or cord will not be seared.
NOTE
Fabric materials such as cord, tape, and webbing, that are cut for use in the maintenance
of ancillary military free fall equipment will normally be heat-seared or dipped in melted
wax mixture, as applicable, to prevent the material from fraying or unraveling. However,
in some instances, the preparation of the material may not be necessary and will be
specified accordingly.
SEARING
The cut ends of nylon tape, webbing and cord lengths may be prepared by heat-searing, which is
performed by pressing the raw end of the material against a hot metal surface (knife) until the nylon has
melted sufficiently. Avoid forming a sharp edge or lumped effect on the melted end.
WAXING
The fraying or unraveling of cotton or nylon tape, webbing, and cord length ends may be prevented by
dipping ½-inch of the raw end of the material into a thoroughly melted mixture of half beeswax and half
paraffin in an electric melting pot. The wax temperature should be substantial enough to ensure the wax
completely penetrates the material, rather than just coating the exterior fabric.

NOTE
Sewing requirements will vary according to the type of item being repaired and the type
of repair being made. The type of sewing machine, type of thread, the stitch range, and
the stitch pattern (if applicable) required to accomplish a sewing procedure will be
specified in the paragraph applicable to the item being repaired. All original stitching that
is cut during the performance of a sewing procedure will be removed from the applicable
item. Immediately after the accomplishment of a machine sewing procedure, trim thread
ends to a point as close as possible to the material that has been sewn.
NOTE
Repair and replacement of air item components is performed in accordance with the
repair instruction in this section and in specific paragraphs applicable to the item being
repaired. Fabrication is a means of replacing an air delivery item component that is
damaged beyond repair and not an issue item. Though the act of fabrication is a
replacement-type action, the function is actually a method of repairing an end item. Since
most fabrication pertains to components that are peculiar to air items, the fabrication of
components that are most general in nature will be detailed in the following paragraphs.
BASTING AND TEMPORARY TACKING
Basting and temporary tacking are hand-sewing methods used to temporarily hold layers of cloth fabric
together while a repair is being performed. The following is a list of procedures that apply to basting and
temporary tacking actions:
1. Basting and temporary tacking should be made using thread that is of a contrasting color to the
material being worked.
2. Basting and temporary tacking will be performed using a single strand of size A, nylon thread, or
ticket No. 24/4 cotton thread.
3. When basting, do not tie knots at any point in the thread length. Also, the sewing should be made
with two stitches per inch.
4. Immediately upon completion of a repair, remove previously made basting or temporary tacking.

STITCHING AND RESTITCHING
Perform stitching and restitching as follows, refer to Tables 1 and 2.
1. The stitching and restitching of Ancillary Military Free Fall Equipment will be accomplished with thread
that is matching in color to the fabric being restitched. If matching color thread is not available, thread
of contrasting color may be used, providing all other specifications are met. Straight stitching and
restitching will be locked by at least 1/2-inch at each end of a stitch row, when possible. Zig-Zag
stitching does not require locking; however, zig-zag restitching should extend at least 1/2-inch into
undamaged stitching at each end, when possible. Keep proper thread tension when possible to
prevent loose top or bobbin thread, and excessively tight stitching resulting in puckering of the
materials sewn. The stitching lock should be embedded in the center of the material. When
restitching, stitch directly over the original stitching and follow the original stitch pattern as closely as
possible.

DARNING
(Refer to Tables 1 and 2). Darning is a sewing procedure used to repair limited size holes, rips, and tears.
A darning repair may be made either by hand or by sewing machine, depending upon the method
preferred and the availability of equipment. However, a darning machine should be used to darn small
holes and tears where fabric is missing. A darning repair will be performed using the following
procedures, as appropriate:
1. Machine darning. Proceed as follows:
a. Using an authorized marking aid of contrasting color, mark a square around the damaged area
and ensure the marking is at least ¼-inch back from each edge of the damaged area.
b. Darn the damaged area by sewing the material in a back and forth manner, using size A or E
nylon thread.

2. Hand darning. When repair of a hole or tear is made by hand darning, the darn should match the
original weave of the damaged material as closely as possible. Hand darning will be performed as
follows:
a. Using an authorized marking aid of contrasting color, mark a square around the damaged
area and ensure the marking is at least ¼ -inch back from each edge of the damaged area.
b. Using a darning needle and a length of size A or E nylon thread, begin darning at one corner of
the marked area. Working parallel with the marking, pass the needle and thread back and forth
through the material until the opposite diagonal corner of the marked area is reached.
c.
Turn the material and weave the needle and thread back and forth across the stitching made in
b., above, until the hole is completely darned.

ZIG-ZAG SEWING
(Refer to Tables 1 and 2). Ancillary Military Free Fall Equipment, that has sustained cut or tear damage,
may be repaired by zig-zag sewing, provided the applicable damaged area does not have any material
missing and the cut or tear is straight or L-shaped. Should the damaged area be irregular shaped or have
material missing, the repair will be achieved by either darning or patching, as required. A zig-zag sewing
repair will be accomplished using a zig-zag sewing machine, with the following procedures:
1. Set the sewing machine to the maximum stitch width.
2. Beginning at a point 1/4-inch beyond one end of the cut or tear, stitch lengthwise along the damaged
area to a point 1/4-inch beyond the opposite end of the cut or tear.

PATCHING
Patching is a procedure used to repair holes that cannot be darned.
Patching limitations. The following is a list of patching limitations for Ancillary Military Free-Fall
Equipment.
WARNING
The limitations prescribed for patching will be stringently adhered to under all circumstances
and without any deviations. Failure to do so may result in failure of an ancillary item causing
death or serious injury to personnel.
1. A patch will not be applied to a damaged area that has been previously patched.
2. There is no limitation to the number of patches, or size of patch, made to each area. However,
determination should be made as to the most economical method to be used, i.e., two or more
patches versus one large patch, or damage that would require replacement.
Making a basic patch. A basic patch is used to repair damaged cloth when the affected area is no closer
than 1-inch from a seam. Should a damaged area be closer than 1-inch to the cited areas, a
miscellaneous patch will be made as detailed in paragraph 3., below. There are three methods that may
be used to apply a basic patch; the procedures for performing each method are outlined in paragraphs a.
and b., as follows:
NOTE
A basic patch will be square or rectangular in shape.
1. The sewn patch. The primary method of applying a basic patch is by sewing. When using this method
of patching, the patch will be applied to either the inside or the outside.

2. As required, cut the applicable stitching to remove or lay aside items that may interfere with the
patching process.
3. Using an authorized marking aid of contrasting color, mark a rectangle or triangle around the
damaged area. Make the mark ½-inch from any adjacent seam or reinforcement.
4. Prepare the damaged area by cutting along the marks made in c. above. Also make a diagonal cut at
each corner of the formed hole to permit a foldback of each raw edge.
5. To complete hole preparation, make a ½-inch foldback of each raw edge. Pin and baste each edge
foldback; use the procedures in the BASTING AND TEMPORARY TACKING paragraph detailed
above.
6. Using the same type of material as in the original construction, mark and cut a patch 2 ½-inches
wider and longer than the inside measurements of the prepared hole.
7. Center the patch material over the prepared hole. Pin the patch material in position.
8. Make a ½-inch fold-under on each edge of the patch material and baste the patch to the prepared

GENERAL
Replacement of grommets. A grommet is a two-piece metal eyelet used to reinforce and protect textile
material at a point where a hole has been made to permit the threading of a line, chord, webbing or the
insertion of a retainer device. The three types of grommets used on air-drop equipment are the flat, plain,
and spur, each of which is installed with an applicable type washer. Repair or replace a defective
grommet using the following procedures, as appropriate.
REPAIR
Remove burrs, rough spots, rust, or corrosion from an installed grommet by filing with a metal file or by
buffing with a crocus cloth.
RESEAT
Reseat a loose grommet by using the applicable procedures described under grommet replacement.
REPLACE
A grommet which is damaged or cannot be reseated will be replaced with a serviceable grommet and
washer of the same size and type from stock and the following procedures, as applicable:
1. Original grommet removal. Using a suitable type tool, lift the edge of the original washer at one point.
2. Grip the lifted washer edge with diagonal nippers and roll the washer edge back to lift the washer
from the original grommet. Remove the original grommet from the material.
3. If the fabric area around the original grommet has been damaged, repair the area by darning WP
0016 00. However, if darning does not provide and adequate repair, construct a suitable sized
reinforcement of the same type material as that used in the original grommet location. Secure the
reinforcement to the inside of the damaged area using the patching procedures in WP 0014 00.
0015 00-1
TM 10-1670-300-20&P

4. Using a single or double bow cutter that is compatible with the size of the replacement grommet, a
lead cutter block, and a rawhide mallet or other non-steel impact device, cut a hole in the repaired
fabric area to accommodate the barrel of the replacement grommet. Ensure the hole is cut with a
slightly smaller diameter than the diameter of the barrel of the replacement grommet.
5. Install a plain or spur grommet by the hand-held method which requires the use of a suitable sized
punch and die, and a rawhide mallet or other non-steel impact device. A flat grommet should also be
installed using the hand-held method, but may be installed using a hand- or foot-operated press and
a suitable size chuck and die.
CAUTION
Tools used to install a grommet will be compatible with the size and type of grommet.
6. Insert the barrel of the replacement grommet through the accommodating hole in the material and
insure the grommet flange is located on the same side of the material as the original grommet.
7. Position the grommet on a suitable sized die with the barrel facing up and place the applicable
washer over the grommet barrel.
NOTE
When installing a flat grommet by the hand-held method, Ensure the grommet barrel and
washer are aligned to preclude off-center setting of the grommet.
8. Using a suitable sized punch and a rawhide mallet or other non-steel impact device, spread the
grommet barrel by hammering as shown until the barrel collar is rolled down smooth on the washer. If
the grommet barrel splits during the hammering process, remove and replace the installed grommet
with a serviceable item from stock, subsequently repeating the procedures in 6. and 7. above.
0015 00-2
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0015 00
9. Check the seating of the grommet, and if the grommet can be turned by hand, repeat the procedure
in step 8. above until the grommet is firmly seated.
10. To install a flat grommet by hand-operated press install a suitable sized chuck and die on a hand or
foot operated press. Secure the chuck and die in place using the available locking screws and a
suitable sized key (Allen type hexagon wrench.)
11. Insert the barrel of the replacement grommet through the accommodating hole in the material as
shown. Insure the flange of the replacement grommet is on the same side of the material as the
original.
12. Position the grommet on the installed die with the barrel facing up and place the replacement washer
over the grommet barrel.
13. Depress the press handle or foot pedal and spread the grommet barrel until the collar of the barrel is
rolled down smoothly on the washer.
14. Check the grommet for a firm seating. If the grommet can be turned by hand, repeat the procedure
above (step 13.) until a firm seating of the grommet is achieved.

Inspection Prior to Use. Prior to cocking an FF-2 Release for use, ensure it has been inspected in
accordance with above procedures. Evidence of damage to any component of the FF-2 Release, or
evidence that the FF-2 Release has been immersed in salt water shall be cause to consider the item
unserviceable and it shall be removed from service.
Cocking the FF-2 Release for Use
WARNING
Do not attempt to cock the FF-2 Release if reset indicator bar is not aligned with reset
indicator mark. Inaccurate time delay and operating altitude will result. Failure to
observe this warning may result in severe injury or death to parachutist using the FF-2
Release.

TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0022 00
NOTE
FF-2 Releases attaining 25 live operations since being placed in service from depot
storage or previous cleaning will be considered unserviceable even though they pass all
functional checks. Unserviceable FF-2 Releases will be evacuated to a DS facility for
servicing.
Any FF-2 Release attaining 200 live operations or four years of service since being
placed in service from depot storage will be evacuated to depot for overhaul.
Firing to FF-2 Release with the power cable installed constitutes a live operation.
1. Reset FF-2 Release in accordance with RESET function above.
2. Place withdrawal hook (1) on stirrup cocking tool (2).
3. Place one foot in stirrup cocking tool (2) and pull FF-2 Release upward until the main spring (not
visible) in FF-2 Release is compressed and power cable (3) is fully extended and locked into
extended position.

Setting the Opening Altitude. Setting the opening altitude of FF-2 Release will be accomplished
immediately prior to use, as atmospheric conditions will cause the barometric pressure in a drop area to
vary on a day-to-day basis. Since the function of the FF-2 Release is directly affected by prevailing
barometric pressure at a given point, the opening altitude of the FF-2 Release will be calculated on the
FF-2 calculator and the applicable millibar setting will be made on the release on a daily basis.
1. Ascertain barometric pressure of an intended drop zone in inches of mercury or millibars. As an
example, consider pressure at 29.92 inches of mercury which is equal to 1012 millibars.
2. Set the arrow on calculator (1) at “29.9” on outside scale (2) which coincides with “1012” millibar
setting on center scale (3).
3. Set hairline indicator (4) on desired opening altitude in feet which is located on inside scale (5). In this
example, 2500 feet is opening altitude.
4. Read corresponding millibar setting under hairline indicator (4). For the example 2500 feet desired
opening altitude, millibar setting to be made on FF-2 Release is “924”. Recheck the arrow setting
made in previous steps and ensure no inadvertent movements were made.
5. Turn millibar knob on side of FF-2 Release until “924” is aligned with arrow in millibar window.
0022 00-21
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0022 00
WARNING
Premature withdrawal of FF-2 Release arming cable prior to reaching 2500 feet of
altitude above desired opening altitude will result in inaccurate time delay and opening
altitude.
After calculating FF-2 Release opening altitude, the minimum arming altitude (opening
altitude plus 2500 feet) should be ascertained. It is imperative that all concerned
parachutists and aircrew members be aware of this minimum arming altitude.
NOTE
When in use, FF-2 Release aneroid will release timing mechanism to begin operating six
seconds above the altitude/millibar setting. With the example provided above, the timing
mechanism will start operation at 6 seconds or 1080 feet (180 feet per second rate of
descent times six seconds) above the 2500 feet (924 millibar) setting. 2500 plus 1080
equals 3580 feet above surface of the drop zone.
6. Make appropriate log entries as follows:
a. Fill in date.
b. Under number of jumps column, record number of operations. Number 1 will always be used
when FF-2 Release is tested in test chamber, and each operation thereafter will be numbered
consecutively 2 through 56.
c.
Apply signature of individual cocking FF-2 Release.
d. Fill in unit designation.

WARNING
The power housing (outer flexible metal casing) must be inspected for looseness between
its convolutions. Looseness indicates either damage or a loss of interference fit between
the outer housing and teflon liner, which maintains the housing length. Changes in
housing length will affect the pulling stroke of the AR2 and could result in incomplete
extraction of ripcord pins.
4. Grasp the outer flexible metal housing casing with both hands, thumbs pointing toward each other.
Hold the housing firmly by pinching between thumbs and fingers. Placement of thumbs should be two
to three inches apart, allowing clear visibility of the casing between thumbs.
5. Alternately push and pull the housing by applying approximately 10 pounds of force. Convolutions
must not move relative to each other, but be careful not to mistake small changes in hand position
caused by the pushing and pulling action for movement of the convolutions. Casing should look and
feel solid, indicating no movement between convolutions.
6. Relocate the hand position and apply the procedure at four-inch to six-inch intervals over the entire
length of the power housing. Verify that no movement between the casing convolutions exists. Any
relative movement of the housing convolutions indicates a defective power housing, which must be
replaced.
REPAIR
Disassembly of power cable assembly
1. Tap flange end of power housing (1) on a table top to cause the cable seal retainer (2) to protrude
from the power housing. If necessary, reach behind the cable seal retainer with a small hooked tool to
start it from the power housing so that it may be gripped with the fingers. Slow withdrawal of cable
seal retainer will usually bring power cable seal (3) with it. If not, use same tool to free power cable
seal and remove it.
2. Pull ball (4) of power cable through power cable seal (3) and remove power cable (5) from power
housing (1).

MAINTENANCE ALLOCATION CHART, INTRODUCTION
INTRODUCTION
The Army Maintenance System MAC
This introduction provides a general explanation of all maintenance and repair functions authorized at
various maintenance levels under the standard Army Maintenance System concept.
The MAC (immediately following the introduction) designates overall authority and responsibility for the
performance of maintenance functions on the identified end item or component. The application of the
maintenance functions to the end item or component shall be consistent with the capacities and
capabilities of the designated maintenance levels, which are shown on the MAC in column (4) as:
Unit - includes two subcolumns, C (operator/crew) and O (unit) maintenance
Direct Support - includes an F subcolumn
General Support - includes an H subcolumn
Depot - includes a D subcolumn
The tools and test equipment requirements (immediately following the MAC) list the tools and test
equipment (both special tools and common tool sets) required for each maintenance function as
referenced from the MAC.
The remarks (immediately following the tools and test equipment requirements) contain supplemental
instructions and explanatory notes for a particular maintenance function.
Maintenance Functions
Maintenance functions are limited to and defined as follows:
1. Inspect. To determine the serviceability of an item by comparing its physical, mechanical, and/or
electrical characteristics with established standards through examination (e.g., by sight, sound, or
feel). This includes scheduled inspection and gagings and evaluation of cannon tubes.
2. Test. To verify serviceability by measuring the mechanical, pneumatic, hydraulic, or electrical
characteristics of an item and comparing those characteristics with prescribed standards on a
scheduled basis, i.e., load testing of lift devices and hydrostatic testing of pressure hoses.
3. Service. Operations required periodically to keep an item in proper operating condition, i.e. to clean
(includes decontaminate, when required), to preserve, to drain, to paint, or to replenish fuel,
lubricants, chemical fluids, or gases. This includes scheduled exercising and purging of recoil
mechanisms.
4. Adjust. To maintain or regulate, within prescribed limits, by bringing into proper or exact position, or
by setting the operating characteristics to specified parameters.
5. Align. To adjust specified variable elements of an item to bring about optimum or desired
performance.
0030 00-1
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0030 00
6. Calibrate. To determine and cause corrections to be made or to be adjusted on instruments of test,
measuring, and diagnostic equipment used in precision measurement. Consists of comparisons of
two instruments, one of which is a certified standard of known accuracy, to detect and adjust any
discrepancy in the accuracy of the instrument being compared.
7. Remove/Install. To remove and install the same item when required to perform service or other
maintenance functions. Install may be the act of emplacing, seating, or fixing into position a spare,
repair part, or module (component or assembly) in a manner to allow the proper functioning of
equipment or system.
8. Replace. To remove an unserviceable item and install a serviceable counterpart in its place.
“Replace” is authorized by the MAC and assigned maintenance level is shown as the 3rd position
code of the Source, Maintenance, and Recoverability (SMR) code.
9. Repair. The application of maintenance services, including fault location/troubleshooting,
removal/installation, and disassembly/assembly procedures, and maintenance actions to identify
troubles, and restore serviceability to an item by correcting specific damage, fault, malfunction, or
failure in a part, subassembly, module (component or assembly), end item, or system.
NOTE
The following definitions are applicable to the “repair” maintenance function:
Services - Inspect, test, service, adjust, align, calibrate, and/or replace.
Fault location/troubleshooting - The process of investigating and detecting the cause of
equipment malfunctioning; the act of isolating a fault within a system or Unit Under Test
(UUT).
Disassembly/assembly - The step-by-step breakdown (taking apart) of a spare/functional
group coded item to the level of its least component, that is assigned an SMR code for
the level of maintenance under consideration (i.e., identified as maintenance significant).
Actions - Welding, grinding, riveting, straightening, facing, machining, and/or resurfacing.
10. Overhaul. That maintenance effort (service/action) prescribed to restore an item to a completely
serviceable/operational condition as required by maintenance standards in appropriate technical
publications. Overhaul is normally the highest degree of maintenance performed by the Army.
Overhaul does not normally return an item to like new condition.
11. Rebuild. Consists of those services/actions necessary for the restoration of unserviceable equipment
to a like new condition in accordance with original manufacturing standards. Rebuild is the highest
degree of material maintenance applied to Army equipment. The rebuild operation includes the act of
returning to zero those age measurements (e.g., hours/miles, etc.) considered in classifying Army
equipment/components.

EXPLANATION OF CROSS-REFERENCE INDEXES WORK PACKAGES FORMAT AND COLUMNS
National Stock Number (NSN) Index Work Package.
STOCK NUMBER Column. This column lists the NSN in National item identification number (NIIN)
sequence. The NIIN consists of the last nine digits of the NSN, i.e.,
NSN
5305-01-574-1467
NIIN
When using this column to locate an item, ignore the first four digits of the NSN. Use the complete NSN
(13 digits) when requisitioning by stock number.
FIG. Column. This column lists the number of the figure where the item is identified/located. The figures
are in the repair parts list and special tools list work packages.
ITEM Column. The Item number identifies the item associated with the figure listed in the adjacent FIG.
Column. This item is also identified by the NSN listed on the same line.
2. Part Number (P/N) Index Work Package. P/Ns in this index are listed in ascending alphanumeric
sequence (i.e., vertical arrangement of letter and number combinations which place the first letter or digit
of each group in order A through Z, followed by the numbers 0 through 9, and each following letter or
digit in like order).
PART NUMBER Column. Indicates the P/N assigned to the item.
0032 00-5
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0032 00
FIG. Column. This column lists the number of the figure where the item is identified/located in the repair
parts list and special tools list work packages.
ITEM Column. The item number is the number assigned to the item as it appears in the figure
referenced in adjacent figure number column.
SPECIAL INFORMATION
USABLE ON CODE (UOC). The usable on code appears in the lower left corner of the Description
Column heading. Usable on codes are shown as “UOC: …” in the Description Column (justified left) on
the first line under the applicable item/nomenclature. Uncoded items are applicable to all models.
Identification of the usable on codes used in this RPSTL are:
Code
Used On
No usable on codes assigned for this end item.
Fabrication Instructions. Bulk materials required to manufacture items are listed in the bulk material
functional group of this RPSTL. Part numbers for bulk material are also referenced in the Description
Column of the line item entry for the item to be manufactured/fabricated. Detailed fabrication instructions
for items source coded to be manufactured or fabricated are found in WP 0045 00, Illustrated List of
Manufactured Items.
Index Numbers. Items which have the word BULK in the figure column will have an index number shown
in the item number column. This index number is a cross-reference between the NSN / P/N index work
packages and the bulk material list in the repair parts list work package.”
Illustrations List. The illustrations in this RPSTL contain unit authorized items. Illustrations published in
this technical manual contain unit authorized items that appear in this RPSTL. The tabular list in the repair
parts list work package contains only those parts coded “O” in the third position of the SMR code,
therefore, there may be a break in the item number sequence.
HOW TO LOCATE REPAIR PARTS
1.
When NSNs or P/Ns Are Not known.
First. Using the table of contents, determine the assembly group to which the item belongs. This is
necessary since figures are prepared for assembly groups and subassembly groups, and lists are
divided into the same groups.
Second. Find the figure covering the functional group or subfunctional group to which the item belongs.
Third. Identify the item on the figure and note the number(s).
Fourth. Look in the repair parts list work packages for the figure and item numbers. The NSNs and part
numbers are on the same line as the associated item numbers.
2.
When NSN is Known.
First, if you have the NSN, look in the STOCK NUMBER column of the NSN index work package. The
NSN is arranged in NIIN sequence. Note the figure and item number next to the NSN.
0032 00-6
TM 10-1670-300-20&P
0032 00
Second. Turn to the figure and locate the item number. Verify that the item is the one you are looking for.
3.
When P/N is Known.
First. If you have the P/N and not the NSN, look in the PART NUMBER column of the P/N index work
package. Identify the figure and item number.
Second. Look up the item on the figure in the applicable repair parts list work package.

This fine document...
Was brought to you by me:
Liberated Manuals -- free army and government manuals
Why do I do it? I am tired of sleazy CD-ROM sellers, who take publicly
available information, slap “watermarks” and other junk on it, and sell it.
Those masters of search engine manipulation make sure that their sites that
sell free information, come up first in search engines. They did not create it...
They did not even scan it... Why should they get your money? Why are not
letting you give those free manuals to your friends?
I am setting this document FREE. This document was made by the US
Government and is NOT protected by Copyright. Feel free to share,
republish, sell and so on.
I am not asking you for donations, fees or handouts. If you can, please
provide a link to liberatedmanuals.com, so that free manuals come up first in
search engines:
